INTRODUCING ORISTANO
Oristano might not be Sardinia’s most famous city, or indeed its biggest.However, these facts only serve to make it even more impressive quite how much this beautiful little city and its surrounding area have to offer.Within a relatively small space you can find everything from buzzing urban centres to tranquil beaches, innova-tive gastronomy to ancient ruins. A more varied place would be very hard to find indeed.Oristano is rich in history and culture and this is reflected both in the city sights and in its atmosphere. Within the historic centre there are several beautiful churches repre-senting different eras of history and different architectural styles. Besides churches, there are plenty of other examples of wonderful architecture and design such as the towers of the old city walls or the palaces of piazza Eleonora. The narrow, winding streets are filled with shops selling  jewellery, clothing, gifts and food and there is a refresh-ing lack of large chain stores here, giving way to a more artisan, more personal way of doing things. In the cafés and piazzas locals and visitors alike sit and chat animat-edly at all hours of the day, creating a friendly, welcoming ambience that can be felt all around the city.For the gourmets among you, this is certainly the right place. Locals pride themselves on their delicious, gutsy cuisine and excellent
vernaccia
 wine. Given the proxim-ity to the sea and Oristano’s heritage, fish and seafood feature heavily in the local dishes, and such tasty and fresh seafood as this it would be hard to find elsewhere.  Those with a sweeter tooth will be very well served by the beautiful little local cakes and pastries, as much a pleasure to the eye as to the stomach.Whilst visiting Oristano in the summer has obvious ad-vantages, it is truly a place with perennial appeal. The most palpable example of this is on the last Sunday be-fore Lent, when Sa Sartiglia is held. This is a tradition that has been going for centuries, having grown in strength during the dark years of Spanish rule as a way for the lo-cal population to maintain and manifest their identity.However, there is plenty to come and see in Oristano. With all its diverse traditions, sights and customs it truly is one of Sardinia’s greatest assets, and is waiting with open arms for you to explore all the fantastic things it has to offer!

TRAIN STATION 󰀨STAZIONE FERROVIARIA󰀩
Oristano’s train station is a little far out from the city centre but easily linked to it by the local buses (take the red or green lines to piazza Mariano). It’s fairly small and thus very easy to navi-gate, and timetables are clearly displayed both on paper and electronic screens. As well as a ticket office, there is a multi-lin-gual ticket machine which is very easy to use. There is
no left luggage
 facility (the nearest is at the bus station) but there is a newsagent, a bar, toilets and a waiting room.
